Yesilköy is the miltary part of Istanbul - Atatürk International Airport.
HvHO 5 Filo is the only flying class. The other HvHO classes have no aircraft assigned to them but do have their own patches.
5 Filo uses Yalova, just across the Bosporus as a Forward Operating Base due to the congested airspace around Atatürk IAP.

 
The T-41D is the second platform that the aspirant pilots of the Turkish Air Force will fly, after being trained on Gliders. The T-41Ds of the Hava Harp Okulu are officially operated out of Istanbul Yesilköy Hava Meydani but have regular camps on Yalova Hava Meydani, just south of Yesilköy.
